A story of wool from farm to product

An introduction to the British Wool learning website

The story of British wool is fascinating and most people will be surprised at how little they know about it. Those who are familiar with it speak with passion on the topic and from a quick trip to our headquarters in Bradford you would see beaming faces filled with woolly knowledge. Through this new site we hope to share some of our knowledge with you.      

We created the British Wool learning website to explore farming, the amazing British wool industry and of course sheep! It’s a curriculum linked learning resource website which is packed full of fun and interesting ways for teachers, parents, grandparents, clubs and organisations to communicate the story of British sheep and the wool industry to children. The website is freely accessible to all. What’s on the site I hear you ask?

Available on the British Wool Learning site

  • Fun facts about sheep and the wool industry
  • Assembly and lesson plans for teachers
  • Worksheets for you to download
  • Interactive games for kids
  • Fun quizzes
  • Craft activities

…and much more.

What age group is the site aimed at?

The website is split into three different age groups; early years, 5-7 year-olds and 7-11 year-olds. This allows us to tailor activities for children at different ages and learning stages, meaning there is something for everyone.

Perhaps colouring in is your thing? Then print one of our colouring activity sheets and get the pencils out. Or maybe you need a helper when practicing maths… why not take a look at our multiplication worksheets? Perhaps you just really love counting sheep? We’ve got a game for that.

However you want to learn, the British Wool learning website is here to teach you about the story of wool in a number of different ways. It’s an excellent tool for children, teachers and parents, but don’t take our word for it, see for yourself!
